I love watching my kids learning something and not even realizing it. Here's 6 fun ways to help your kids learn.
The Destination Game - choose a geographic location and add words that start with the same sound. (I went on vacation in California. I ate cookies and cupcakes. I flew a kite and got a new cat.) phonics
What's the Total? - have your child guess the total of your grocery bill (before coupons for young children, as they get older, add coupons in to make it harder!) math and estimation skills
Tounge Twisters - (Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers...) articulation and speech
Dominoes - number recognition and problem solving
Narrator - give your child a recorder (or notebook and pen for older children) to record events throughout the day. language and vocabulary
Hangman - alphabet and refines spelling
